He was one of NCFR’s most widely traveled leaders. In his first few months alone, he made some 15 trips for NCFR. Equitable released him at their expense to spend one quarter of his time on NCFR affairs.  He died in 1985.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 Man has always been concerned about time . . . Children are no different from adults in this regard. For them as well, the time of waiting is too long or the effort is never-ending. Fraisse writes: ‘It is through living with others that we suffer from postponements forced on the fulfillment of our desires . . . When we submit to time it means for all practical purposes that we accept the time of others.’ The crux of the time story lies in learning to appreciate the major consequences of the time choices made, what is offered and what is destroyed, the positives and the negatives of time choices . . . Among the dimensions of family time choices, there is ample evidence that families fail to consider time factors in depth prior to making choices.
